Shortcut Icons

Are some of you dependent on the keyboard? Well, I am and I am always on a lookout for keyboard shortcuts. Here are some of the shortcuts that i always use.

These are the desktop shortcuts:

Shutdown

  1. On a clear area on your desktop, right-click the mouse and Goto New -> Shortcut
  2. Enter shutdown -s -t 00 for the Command Line
  3. Name the shortcut Shutdown Workstation (or any other name you find appropriate)

Restart

  1. On a clear area on your desktop, right-click the mouse and Goto New -> Shortcut
  2. Enter shutdown -r -t 00 for the Command Line
  3. Name the shortcut Restart Workstation (or any other name you find appropriate)

Logoff

  1. On a clear area on your desktop, right-click the mouse and Goto New -> Shortcut
  2. Enter shutdown -l -t 00 for the Command Line
  3. Name the shortcut Logoff Workstation (or any other name you find appropriate)

Lock

  1. On a clear area on your desktop, right-click the mouse and Goto New -> Shortcut
  2. Enter rundll32 user32.dll,LockWorkStation for the Command Line
  3. Name the shortcut Lock Workstation (or any other name you find appropriate)

Sleep

  1. On a clear area on your desktop, right-click the mouse and Goto New -> Shortcut
  2. Enter rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState for the Command Line
  3. Name the shortcut Sleep Workstation (or any other name you find appropriate)

chantc,

When I right-click on Local Drive (C:) and select properties, then "Disk Cleanup" on some PCs (or I think it's Windows), it hangs forever. I've search and found that there is a registry fix for that as a bug in WinXP (?). Do you know of any other way to fix this problem without resorting to registry tweaking? Thanks!

Regards,
kanglc

Hmm... Why don't you try this.
- Start > Run
- Type "cleanmgr c: /sageset:0

Tick the places that you want the clean up manager to clear. You can tick all if you want.

After that:
- Start > Run
- Type "cleanmgr c: /sagerun:0

See if it works. If it doesn't, then I'm afraid you will need the patch.

This is actually one of my tips still in my storage. :) Just hope it helps you. Will post this up when I have time.
